13/06/2003 Phil Johnson The Independent Review

But if it's songs you want to hear, there's somecrackers on the new album by Jacqui Dankworth, As The Sun Shines Down On Me (Candid,****). Dankworth has adopted a string-driven Cassandra Wilson-style approach to an imaginative selection of standards, in which Mike Outram's guitars are well to the fore. It's her best album so far, and if there's a fault (and there is), it remains an unwillingness to risk causing offence. More grit, and less ingratiation to the pipe-and-slippers sector, and this would be truly great.

 

10/06/2003 John Bungey The Times

......an audience beyond hardcore jazzers. That's what Jacqui Dankworth has her eye on with an album whose mellow tones should chime with Norah Jones's admiring legions. On 'As the Sun Shines Down on Me' (Candid) the singer (daughter of Cleo Laine) wraps her gorgeous, pure tones around imaginatively reinterpreted covers old and newish: Blue Moon to Joni Mitchell and Dylan. She's backed by a low-key three-piece band, including brother Alec on bass, though a bigger musical arsenal might have made for more varied listening. It's a hugely assured set, and while some might dismiss this album as dinner-party jazz, your guests would thank you for playing it.
